DenG Showers Presidential Candidate George Weah With Love On 51 Birthday 

 Calling senator Weah a global icon, the father of the nation, the beloved peacemaker, philanthropist, humanitarian, one of the greatest African players of all-time, one of the best forwards of his generation and a hero, DenG wished the presidential candidate many more years to come and a blessed day, on social media.  

Born 1 October 1966 Weah is the only African soccer player to be named FIFA World Player of the Year. That same year he snatched the Ballon d'Or, becoming the first African player to win these awards.

This is how Google profiled him: "In 1989, 1994 and 1995, he was named the African Footballer of the Year, and in 1996, he was named African Player of the Century."

He was a "clinical finisher" when it came to goalscoring, dribbling, acceleration and speed. In fact, FIFA described him as "the precursor of the multi-functional strikers of today." In 2004 after he retired from the sports, Weah was named by King Pelé in the FIFA 100 list of the world's greatest players alive.

"Since my life, I've never seen someone - especially a Liberian - this humble as George Weah. On my birthday, he quit his campaign only to rain birthday wishes on me, in the presence of my friends," Deng said sobbingly.

Happy birthday Senator Weah

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
